Appearance: There are 7 types of mice in our country. The most common is the house mouse (which lives in cities and has a light brown coat and large ears) and the deer mouse (which lives in the country and has a gray or brown coat and white legs). Mice weigh between 10 and 20 grams on average, however bigger one scan weigh up to 50g. The length of their body is on average 10 cm.
Life cycle: Mice reproduce at a very fast rate. A single mouse can have up to 15 litters per year (babies only spend 21 days in their mother’s womb). Every litter contains between 5 and 12 baby mice, and these babies can themselves reproduce after only 6 weeks! A mouse infestation can therefore occur extremely quickly! Mice can live up to 3 years.
Habits: Outdoors, mice often live in a small nest burrowed in the ground (in fields or near houses), and they search for food within a radius of 10 meters. When the cold arrives (at the end of fall), the mice will often infiltrate homes, businesses, farms or other heated buildings where there is food. The mice sneak it through soffits, chimneys, ventilation dampers, as well as through cracks in window and door frames, through the holes around telephone wires, etc. They make their nests in the attics and roof spaces, as well as in the walls. The mice will then create passage ways to get to their food source during the night. To achieve this, they gnaw through insolation and electric wires to reach the kitchen. They will eat the seeds they find on your counters, raid the pantry and rummage through the garbage.
Food: When they live outdoors, mice eat seeds, vegetables and small fruits. Inside houses, they eat human food: bread, flour, meat, cheese, butter, sweets, etc.
Danger: The presence of mice can quickly become a threat to your safety and that of your close ones, since they gnaw through electric wires and can therefore cause a fire. In addition, mice and rats leave feces behind on their path, which can spread some diseases or parasites to humans, such as meningitis (70% of mice are infected with it), hantavirus (which can sometimes be fatal) and tapeworm. These diseases can also be transmitted by their bite, or by the bite of the fleas which they carry.
Damage to buildings: Mice can also cause damages to your home or business by making holes in the walls and ceilings, displacing insulating wool, etc. A mouse infestation discovered by a buyer shortly after buying a property could even be considered a hidden defect. For this reason you must act quickly and immediately communicate with a mouse exterminator in Laval (or in a surrounding city) who will know how to solve your problem.
There are several possible treatments to proceed with the extermination of mice and rats.
